well-respected people. when i got the fbi file because bob was an fbi agent in world war ii, turns out that no one ever forgot they were jewish. when they interviewed the townspeople. fine, high type jewish folks. it was relevant, but not to bob as he was growing up. he didn't see anti-semitism, and as i said in the book, he thought the cutest girls were at the baptist young people's union. that's where he was. he wanted to get legislated president of the union, but the minister, i think it's minister, i'm jewish, so i don't know what i'm talking about, but the minister said he couldn't be. if not for that, he would have been elected president.
